Not only will you have the opportunity to catch world class fish, but you will be able to do it in the intracoastal as you get a grand tour of urban Fort Lauderdale. Since the fishing takes place in the protected inshore waters you do not have to worry about getting seasick or having to travel far offshore in rough seas. All of our fishing is with light tackle, which makes the experience much more exciting and allows the angler to feel part of the action. Our main species we target are tarpon (sometimes over 100 pounds), snook, jack crevalle, barracuda, and sharks. We mainly fish with live bait, and most of the action is topwater giving the angler a visual experience. Anglers are welcome to hold the rod or use the rod holder until there is a bite depending on how much anglers want to participate.

Captain Zach is a hell of a guy. Got us onto at least 10 tarpon. And a number of other fish. Showed us all the good spots. And although we only landed a fish or two, the ones that took our lines were an amazing fight. 150+ lb tarpon is quite the formidable foe. Zach was friendly

My 13th trip with Captain Slip, AKA, Captain Zach Routman, began on an auspicious note when he arrived at the dock with a livewell full of freshly caught Mullet. Fishing with Zach during the annual Mullet Run migration is like being with a Zen Fighterpilot in combat. "Caught,

As a south Floridian and avid lake fisherman I thought I knew what to expect on my first charter with Zach; boy was I pleasantly surprised. Zach is a native Floridian and knows the winding water ways of Fort Lauderdale like the back of his hand. Zach is very good at keeping
